1. Image Display Error Notice

When you perform any of the following operations on picture data shot with a Canon digital camera using Windows Explorer on a PC in which Windows XP Home Edition/ Windows XP Professional Edition (hereinafter called "Windows XP") is installed, the Exif attribute information that is attached to the image data is altered. As a result, errors related to the display of thumbnail images and some software functions may occur both on Canon digital cameras and accompanying software utilities (ZoomBrowser EX, PhotoStitch, etc.).


* Select "Picture File" -> Click "Rotate Counter Clockwise" or "Rotate Clockwise" Button (using buttons located on the bottom of the Preview Screen)
* Select "Picture File" -> Select "Rotate Counter Clockwise" or "Rotate Clockwise" command (using the menu that appears by right clicking the mouse)
* Select "Simple" display on "Summary" tab of picture file "Property" -> Click "Apply" or "OK"


* After performing any of the above operations, the Exif attribute information is altered and cannot be restored.
If you intend to perform any of the operations listed above, we recommend that you do so using a back-up copy of the original picture file, and not the original data.

* Even if the Exif attribute information is altered, the image data remains intact and the file can still be opened and used in most image editing applications such as AdobeTM Photoshop¾.

2. CF Card Formatting Error Notice

When a CF card with a capacity of greater than 32MB is formatted in Windows XP, "FAT32" will be selected as the default file system setting.

When using a "FAT32"-formatted CF card in some Canon digital cameras, the following error messages may appear on the camera's LCD monitor.

If this happens, format the CF Card with a Canon digital camera to make it usable in that camera. If in-camera formatting fails, remove the CF Card, then re-insert it and try to format it again.

I cannot format my brand new SD card with my Canon Powershot 970 IS. It is a 4G, however i just tried an old 1G and it will not format that one either .... perplexed.

Try another type of SD card as the Canon camera are very choosy with regards to SD card. All I want to say that, not all SD card will work on Canon camera. Or if you insist of using your SD card you have to format it in your computer using Canon formatting software which is downloadable in the website.

Lost my canon powershot sx200is manuel; how can I get another copy----how do I delete pictures from camera? my camera is only about 30 days old.

Canon does not have the manual for download. Canon will provide you a new manual for a reasonable price. Go to (or .ca) for ordering info.
Deleting pictures all at once on a memory card camera is called 'Format'. Be aware that format removes even locked (protected) pictures. Be CERTAIN your pictures have all downloaded before you format. Unplug the camera from the computer to 'Format'. The Canon software has a preferences setting for 'Delete pictures from camera', I THINK...

Windows won't recognise my cannon Powershot 1000IS

Have you downloaded the most recent software from Canon at their website? Sometimes the old software programs get wonky & can cause this issue. Canon is a great company with wonderful customer service, no matter how old or how pricy your camera/printer/etc. is. If nothing helps with the new software download, try contacting them through e-mail or phone & they'll get you back on track!

Camera Software

Hey EGrett,
I am providing a link below to the drivers for your camera. The manufacturer does not show a download of the software available for your operating system, but you could probably get a copy of it by calling Canon. I hope this helps!

Videos and photos not all readable by computer when taken on Canon PowerShot A640

You will likely need to use the software that came with the Canon powershot vs. just trying to download via the default (scanner and camera wizard for example) program. If you are doing this already, then I don't know why it is not transferring them over to the computer properly, but if you are not using the Canon Zoombrowser software, you should make sure you load the cd that came with it.

Hope this helps!

Blank screen on Powershot S40 - I don't think it's E18

This is a problem with the CCD card. Canon has issued a recall and will fix/repair for free. Go to the Canon website and search for CCD to get more info (or call them direct).
